‘ARTHUR’ – ALIVE AND THRIVING?
For sure the official launch of Arthur’s Dead way back in November at the Crescent Arts Centre in uptown Belfast was a huge success. In terms of turnouts and books sold (and signed) the ‘tour’ has continued in the same vein.
The energy and enthusiasm generated at each of these ‘Meet-the-Author & Book Signing Events’ hosted so far has surpassed everything I hoped for – thank you.
- Direct sales are, I’m delighted to report, are ahead of target. For someone who has been in the sales game for most of his working life, that statement is music to the ear!
So, where next with the ‘Arthur programme?
JAN. 11th : Cultra @ Royal North of Ireland YC
FEB. 1st : Larne @ East Antrim Boat Club
FEB. 8th : Co. Dublin @ Skerries Sailing Club
FEB. 14th : Bangor @ Ballyholme YC (provisional)
March TBA : Newtownards, Donaghadee & Donegal
So a busy wee period ahead for Thomas Jobling. As well as the ‘tour’ a number of person-to-person interviews are being arranged – keep your ears open and your eyes peeled, you’ll be surprized where I’ll pop up!
In the meantime, I’d be delighted if you were to pop into any of the above locations (best to call the venue first…), and of course I wish you all a prosperous 2017.
Finally, finally; a big thank you if you’ve already bought ‘Arthur’ whether as a download or in paperback. Remember, I’m not too far away (in NI) if you need a gift wrapped & signed copy for that ‘boat mad’ friend’s birthday – message me on FB or call on 07809691585…
